Knoxville Contractor, Rocky Top Air, joins One Hour and Ben Franklin Brands

KNOXVILLE, TN (December 12, 2018) – Locally-owned and operated Rocky Top Air, which has been serving the surrounding area since 2009, has joined forces with One Hour Air Heating and Air Conditioning® (One Hour) and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®.

With 60 years of experience combined, owners Gerald Allison and Ben Granger started what has become one of the largest heating and air conditioning companies in the metro Knoxville area. The company runs 35 trucks and employs 60 people. Asked why they chose to transition, Gerald Allison said, “This is the right next step for our business. By making the transition to One Hour and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we now have more resources available to better serve our customers and provide the best service possible.”

With this move, the local company will be able to continue training staff with the best resources, provide stronger warranties and guarantees, and lower product costs – just in time for the cold winter.
